|My studio and Little Goddess in progress|
I listened to a 24-hour marathon of Murder She Wrote last night and today. I love that show! Great stories, very corny. Today one of the episodes had them working on a computer and they were using DOS. If you don't know what that is, count your blessings, if you do, you're probably about my age and you have my sympathies for having to learn DOS : ) I love noticing the technologies in the old television shows - the honkin' cordless phones, the phone booths, the huge computers. Ah progress is GOOD. But I digress...
|Almost finished with this part!|
This fringe is interesting. I'm using about 6 yards of thread just for the fringe, and starting from the center, so have wound up half of it and sewn the right-hand side with the other 3 yards. The thread is magnificent - doesn't tangle at all. It's silky, but not too slippery, so it holds a knot very well. I don't put many knots in my work, but I like to make sure it's very strong and stable, so a few in strategic places.
So far I've spent about 20 hours on her, but this is my first one like this, so it takes longer to learn. The time includes choosing the beads, and I don't know which part I like to choose the most - the colors that surround her face, or the background, or the fringe. The fringe on any of my pieces is always exciting because I usually do it last, and it's very satisfying to finish : )
She will go to the Green Drake Gallery for sale when done, but I'll also do some for my Etsy Dreamkeeper Creations shop. Stay tuned, I'll upload a photo of her when she's done - and this time I'll take her outside where the sun helps me capture her beautiful colors much better.
